A Review of Satis in Jersey City

Satis Bistro in Paulus Hook, Jersey City

Conquest: The name of the restaurant Satis, which is on Washington Street, means “enough” in Latin, as in satisfied.


Michael Fiorianti, formerly a chef at Goldman Sachs, became the executive chef at Satis when it opened in December 2010. (Satis means enough in Latin, as in the word satisfied.) Now the rest of us can enjoy the dishes he mastered by observing his Italian-American grandmother in her Brooklyn kitchen and, later, celebrated chefs like Thomas Keller.
